THE DETAILS SURROUNDING THE CRIME

On October 29, 1992, California Fire Department Officials responded to a report of an explosion at a residence in Long Beach. Upon arrival, fire officials discovered the front door of the residence open and flames coming from the windows. Inside the residence, officials found the body of Sherry Carey lying face down on the bed in one of the rear bedrooms. After the victim was pulled from her home, it was determined that she had been brutally murdered. Her body showed evidence of blunt force trauma, strangulation, and multiple stab wounds. The victim had also been doused with an unknown type of accelerant and set on fire which resulted in first, second and third degree burns across her face and body.

It is believed that the unknown suspect(s) knew Sherry Carey however, authorities are seeking any information regarding this crime.

Sherry Carey lived alone. She owned a caricature drawing business and had interest in resale of antique and collectable furniture. She had different groups of friends each associated with different interests. These groups included friends from charity groups, antique furniture sales/restoration, and country western dancing. The night before Carey's death, she went dancing at a country western bar where she met up with several friends. She reportedly left the bar alone as usual.
